Employsure held a successful information session at the Palace Hotel on Tuesday, attracting local business owners and leading to a number of follow-up meetings with several different businesses across Broken Hill.
Not surprisingly, given the company is all about human resources, the information session centred around how to maximise profits with Human Resources (HR) specialists, and understanding what the different awards and entitlements are, as well as what they entail for both employers and employees.
Craig Hinter, Business Development Manager at Employsure, said, “Employsure currently has over 30,000 clients, with more than 100 clients a week registering at the moment, many through referrals.”
Employsure, says Mr Hinter, operates as a, “twenty-four-seven in-house Human Resources department, where we provide advice such as for induction, award determination, employment-related queries, performance management, and how to manage casuals, as legislation has changed four times in the last few years relating to casual employment.”
Presenter Jade Meredith, an employment relations specialist, discussed some of Employsure’s templates and scripts that business owners can adopt in disciplinary action to ensure businesses remain compliant with the legislation, and act appropriately during a difficult process.
Employsure has also introduced a Human Resources software package, which each employee can download onto their phone as an app.
This apparently allows for accurate time-recording, document control, and rostering, in a bid to streamline those procedures that can often be challenging for small business owners to cover in an accurate and timely manner.
Mr Hinter notes that every business is different and, “the human resources requirements of a café are significantly different than what the business next door would require, for example.”
So, Employsure tailors their requirements for each business.
“Because of this, we already have a number of clients in Broken Hill, and we will be visiting the region regularly to continue to meet with small business owners on these important issues.”
Mr Hinter also confirmed, “there will be another event in the next three-to-six months, and online seminar formats are now being explored to make it more accessible for small business owners to attend.”
